Hi

Squirrelmail is just an email "client" - meaning that it's just like "Outlook" but runs in the browser.
It sounds like it being a server (maybe because you had to install as well the Apache webserver to run the SquirrelMail-client), but it's not - using squirrelmail you can connect to any email-server, from your own private one to gmail.com etc..., but it's still just an email-client (not even that actually - it's just a user interface, nothing more nor less).

The error that you're getting is generated by the email-server (that you're trying to connect to) => you therefore have to look at the squirrelmail logs (and/or mailserver-logs if you have access to them) to understand why your connection was rejected - there is an infinite potential number of reasons.
